My grandchildren transferred from a NYC private school to HVES in the middle of the year. The teachers made every effort to ease their transition and the kids settled in remarkably quickly. They are doing very well academically and seem to be having a great time. I couldn't ask for more.

I went Hermosa Valley K-8th back in the day, and now I have a niece attending. Just as amazing as I remember it, and still has that private school with a public school edge feel to it.

A wonderful public school in a small town that even with limited funds feels like a private school with kids & community coming first.

This is a great small school. As a parent, what I would like to see is for the school to excell past the ordinary and really initiate thorough and advanced study of math, language and sciences.

I have a 9 year old at this school and fine the principal to be the best with whom I've ever interacted. Clear communication and transparency are just two of the highly regarded qualities that I find in the mgmt.

I love this school and all of it's agendas. My oldest son Larry is now a sreshman at Mira Cosa High School and has adapted very well.This ,in a great part to his foundation at both View and Valley.My youngest son Brennan loves all he does at school and only a parent of 5 can see the attitudes of youth in their desire and anticipation to succeed. Great job, I feel you are truly dedicated to growing these students to there upmost potentials!

We were very happy with Hermosa Valley and were sad to leave due to a job relocation. The teachers were enormously caring, and there's a small community feel that makes it so much more accessible. I feel my son received an excellent education, and having transferred to another school, he's ahead of the other students his age.

I found this school to be so on top of things with our child. Our child could have slipped thru the crack had it not been for the incredible eye of the amazing asst. principal & administrator. We are so very grateful for this fabulous team of teachers & administrators.

I think Hermosa View and Valley are simular to a private school due to parent involvement and the variety of programs offered: YAA, Nutrition, Science labs, technology and Music. I am quite involved in the school being co-president of the PTO.

As with many public schools in California, funding (or lack thereof) is an issue. Still small size of school, involvement of parents and community make this a very good public school choice.

I was not impressed with this school. There is such great emphasis on academics and not much else. I would like to see more of a balance between academics and extracurricular activities.

Teachers are what makes a school great. Hermosa Valley has its share of excellent teachers (some of whom are really extraordinary), but needs to do a better job of weeding out or improving the below average teachers. If a student gets stuck with a poor teacher for a year it can have long-lasting effects. This is a good school system, and due to its manageable size it has the potential to become great.
